I am an Indian national on an F1 visa. I am currently working in a startup in San Jose. I applied for an H1B visa under Consular process and my H1B was recently picked and approved (I have an I-797B).
Can I apply for an H4 visa for my wife or do I have to wait for the visa to be stamped on my passport? Please note that I am still on F1 even though my H4 was approved as I applied my H1 under Consular process.
